It's Been One Of Those Days ....

... well so far at least ......
Was up really early, thinking over my plans and that this was going to be a great day. First hiccup (minor) was that I got bored listening the news on TV so casually flicked over to the films and lo and behold 'The Birds' by Hitchcock - an all time classic - so I just had to have another cup of coffee.
Anyways left the house and pointed the car in the direction of The Craft Barn at Lingfield. Didn't take that long and there were plenty of spaces, which did strike me as a little strange - but moving on. Paid the car park fee for six hours, toddled over the road to The Craft Barn and wham - straight in front of me was all the info for their Craft Extravaganza Weekend - which was on 6th and 7th June ..................... next weekend - lol.
So 82.7 miles later driving through more tar and chipped sections of road than you can shake a digger at; a drive on the M23 (first time I've been on a motorway for ages), a major diversion which took me almost to the uncharted territory of East Grainstead (last time I went there I got totally lost); £3.60 car park charge; £18 in The Craft Barn because it would have been rude not to - lol; another drive on the M23 (which was another disaster because I came off for the A264 and while singing along to the car radio just didn't think and took the first exit of the roundabout at the top of the slip road and ended up back on the M23/A23 - lol; and a semi-serious food shop; I feel just a tad silly - lol.
Still at least I now have strawberries, cream, smoked salmon, prawns, salad, chocolate biscuits and the new Michael McDonald CD ......
Off to plant my runner beans out and sow my salad grow bag ....... what could go wrong with that?
